The FCH2RAIL project, already launched in January 2021, is pioneering in the field of emission-free bi-mode trains, which combine normal track use and emission-free rail travel without overhead lines. Toyota has built, tested and delivered 6 fuel cell modules for the next phase in the project. These modules include the latest Gen2 technology offering more power and higher density in a more compact package. It was decided to use the flat module configuration, allowing the most efficient integration in the demonstration train’s roof.
